I've had a bit of niggle for a while now. It manifests itself as a slight soreness and sensitivity either side of the large tendon below the knee that joins the Tibia. I have tried foam roller and ice, but it is still there. I don't get it when I cycle though. Any thoughts?
My Mojo is somewhere over the Atlantic. It is difficult to remain motivated, especially as I have no job and hardly any money. I see fitness as a way to keep the Black Dog of depression at bay as well as filling my day. My running consists of a 1 mile walk to a huge field which I run round for 20-25 mins, or untill I feel tired. Sometimes I plod round the athletic track if there's a runner or two to converse with. Then I walk the mile back to my flat and do 10 mins with a foam roller and 10 ins stretching. I do get very mild shin splints from time to time, but this is kept in check with specific exercises.
I picked up a Black Saucony Epic Jacket yesterday for £20 and wondered if anyone has one? It's billed as a jacket for cooler weather (which means all year round in the UK) I've never had a running jacket before and usually brave the elements in my Rab Boreas Pull-on or Helly Hansen Lifa top.
I've started to run again after a 20yr absence and wondered if anyone knows of any local running groups near Leek in Staffs? I currently run on my own and would like to run with a few like minded sad-masochists, such as myself.
